A recent business trip to NYC prompted me to write a blog on NYC street style. No one does it like NY, right? Naturally, all walks of life flood the streets of NYC on any given day meaning that any kind of fashion trend is bound to pop up. One style I wanted to report on is the chic and edgy NY street style I kept seeing. Inspired by a mix of athleisure, grunge, and the classic NYC black wardrobe, this modern street style kept popping up on my walk back to Penn Station, and I kinda liked it.
Actually, I liked it a lot!
Much different from sloppy athleisure, this kind of althleisure, if you'll call it that, is carefully styled despite the effort to make it look like it was just thrown together. Cool, casual, and a little hip hop/rocker chic, it ain't going anywhere.
Some of the trends I noticed in this fashion-forward style were of course the quintessential NY black, leggings or anything tight and skinny on the bottom, kicked up kicks, and a touch of edge, be it in a hairstyle, tattoo, or cool pair of shades.

Take your look to the next level, and remember, stay chic!
